The Den Dreef Stadium will be centre stage for the Belgian national team for the second time this week when they welcome Eastern Europeans Belarus to Leuven on Tuesday.
Wales left Flanders empty-handed on matchday one, and Roberto Martinez’s side will hope to send the Belarussian’s home in a similar fashion. Recent results suggest they could do so in emphatic style too, as they have scored an average of 4.8 goals in their last six World Cup Qualifying home matches, with some notable results including 9-0 wins over San Marino and Gibraltar, hitting Cyprus for six and a 5-1 success over Iceland. Even if the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are rested, those in reserve are more than capable, as some of the aforementioned big wins came with rotated lineups being selected.
Belarus are also a much weaker side away from Minsk, having only won four competitive matches in over five years on their travels, all against sides below them in the world rankings. In recent games against more established sides, they let in five against Romania and four against both Germany and the Dutch.
Their form coming into the game is a slight worry too, having just scraped past a weakened Estonia side which was down to ten-men at the weekend.
At either full-strength or second-string, we think Belgium are one of the best bets to record a big win this week, our tip is Belgium (-4) at 11/4.
